In addition to other minimally-invasive techniques like non-excisional or laser-assisted facelifts, some injection treatments can give your skin the look you want without surgery. Many people use techniques like Botox injections, dermal fillers and Sculptra to get smoother, younger looking skin with few side effects and little risk.
Botox may be the most common cosmetic procedure in America, with millions of people using the injections to treat their skin every year. Botox injections cause the muscles under your deep lines and wrinkles to effectively freeze. When these muscles can’t contract, then wrinkles relax and soften, and new ones aren’t able to form.
This direct approach means that Botox injections get quick results, usually seeing an improvement within a few days that will last for months. Botox injections typically take less than a half hour, don’t require any anesthesia, and can be scheduled into your day without worrying about recovery time. With regular return visits every three to six months, you can maintain the results indefinitely.
Collagen is the substance in your skin that gives it the smooth, tight look we associate with youth. As you age, collagen begins to deteriorate and the loss of this layer of tissue leads to wrinkles, especially in the face, neck, and lips.
Dermal fillers are injections that help replace this collagen and bring back smooth skin and full, pronounced lips. These injections typically take less than an hour and require at most a mild topical anesthetic while producing immediate results.
Sculptra is a type of dermal filler treatment that can offer a subtle but noticeable improvement to signs of aging. By injecting a synthetic form of lactic acid, very similar to the acid produced in your muscles, Sculptra helps to volumize the skin instead of just filling in gaps. This technique can provide up to an 80% improvement in as little as a few weeks, and it will last for years.
